    Bought mine used with 17577 miles on it. Certified pre-owned though so it still has the ten year warranty. Paid $24500 out the door. Has every feature you can imagine. Push-start/proximity key, dual sunroof, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, infinity speaker system, bluetooth, nav, etc... It even has a cooled glove box to keep drinks cold on a road trip. Also highest safety score possible from both govt and insurance safety institute.
    those 274 hp are worth jack **** when you're on the highway, they are so damn slow they impeded traffic.

    I did a lot of research prior to purchasing and this was far and away the car that offered the most for the money. Take it for a test drive and I think you'll be surprised at just how nice it is.
    It wasn't - kind of a long story but this is good to know. Both Kia and Hyundai have really been stepping it up in the looks department as well, particularly the latter.

    Actually my first sentence is 100% spot on. Our car industry is laughable.
    2nd sentence obviously tongue in cheek.

    For $24,500 you could have leased a well-equipped BMW 328i for 6 years.

    So instead of being in 2 consecutive brand new BMW's you'll instead be in 1 seven year old Kia for the same time period. The money you'll get back at the end of the Kia's life would be offset by the money you'd have made by keeping that $24,500 invested.

    BMW, particularly a leased 3 series, hasn't been a status symbol in two decades, chimp.

    Words like" chimp" are the type that fill mods in boxes with PM's

    I also cant tell the degree of seriousness but for what its worth:
    1. If you need a really good, QUIET inexpensive generator check out Kippor. I have one on my boat and it has run, well, like a honda for 3/5 the price

    2. I had a new hyundai excel for many years.....ran up 140k miles without a single cough

    I am young (24) and I covered most of the cost with savings and graduation money. I'll have it paid off in 2 years. I'm not set in a career yet so leasing isn't viable for me. I plan to keep this car for many years so being covered by warranty until 2022 is great peace of mind. BMW's need premium gas, cost twice as much to insure as the kia and are rated as one of the least reliable car companies.

    I researched it and it wasn't worth the cost for me.

    Happily, but wow. “Chimp" was PM-worthy? Talk about thin skin. I'll back off because now I just feel sad for the guy.
